    Exciting read

    I have read the entire Corps series at least twice, only regret is that Griffin and/or Butterworth have not continued the series beyond #10.

    more from this reviewer

    The final installment...so far

    This book brings some closure to the characters that have lived in this novel of the Marine Corps. You could start with this book and understand what has come in previous books, but that wouldn't be any where near the fun that you would have, reading the series from the beginning. Ken McCoy and Pick Pickering have grown up considerably since the beginning. They are full of life and you just know that they won't go quietly in to the good night.
    W.E.B. Griffin is an excellent author, and I heartily encourage you to read all of his books if even one of them pique your interest.

    Entertaining couldnt put it down

    I thought it was another good one. W.E.B. Griffin did it again another suspense and action packed book. I really enjoy reading his books.

    W E B is back Thank GOD!

    I have read every one of his books, and the last two, Under Fire, and Final Justice were very poorly written. This book is back in the style of the early Corps series novels. I was truly happy, and read it straight through.

    Vintage Griffin

    W.E.B. Griffin fans are going to love RETREAT, HELL! It is a real page turner. After receiving an advance copy from Putman yesterday I began reading and couldn't put down until the very end. It is vintage Griffin and shows time and care in writing that was lacking in his last Corps novel. It has excellent editing (as opposed to the terrible editing in UNDER FIRE.) Action is nonstop with twists and surpises throughout. I could tell you what some of these are but don't want to spoil readers enjoyment. It will go down as one of Griffin's best.

    Griffin Is Back andOh how we LOVE him.

    The Marine Corps series has been a source of great reading and pleasure for many over the years. Griffin has a style that is hard to beat and can develope a story line and characters better than almost anyone. He can also on rare occasion frustrate his fan base when a story comes out that isnt as crisp as most. The volume leading his Marines into the Korean War was one such book. This is the second in that series. Here the author ammends for that. This is exciting fresh action with energy and plot continuation that shows the authors genius. Old Friends, New Adventures, Historical Insights, and page turning pleasures. Thanks Mr Butterworth.

    Exciting war drama

    By late September 1950, sent by General Douglas ¿El Supreme¿ MacArthur, the marines make a key landing on the Korean Peninsular. The General plans to send his forces across the 38th parallel in order to repel the North Koreans beyond the Yalu River. Though he expects no Chinese forces, he has USMC Major Ken ¿Killer¿ McCoy and his ¿lost¿ patrol seek enemy information.<P> Meanwhile BG Pickering earns frequent flyer miles as he struggles to lessen the growing dispute between Commander-in-Chief Truman and ex facto supreme commander of the United Nation¿s forces MacArthur. Pickering also has a personal concern with his son ¿Pick¿ missing in action beyond enemy lines. Pick knows if the Commies capture him, they will execute him. He has survived fifty-eight days due to luck, some local help, and by constantly moving about, but staying near his downed plane. Killer finds evidence that Pick still lives, but cannot search for the MIA as he and his men have captured an apparent Intel Officer with information that massive Chinese forces await the Americans.<P> No one does American military history novels better than W.E.B. Griffin does as he shows with this deep look at the early stages of the Korean Conflict. The story line grips the audience from the moment Pick struggles to survive and never lets up. The key as always to the Corps novels (this is the tenth) is the support cast that brings out real events so that the audience feels the battle as much as the political intrigue at home. Genre fans will once again salute the Five Star General for his wonderfully exhilarating book.<P> Harriet Klausner

    Excellent Writer

    Being a police officer I have enjoyed Griffin's novels in reference to police stories. I also enjoy his novels about WWII. I like the way his charaters interact with real life people of that time era. Griffin is an excellent writer.
